Sudden cardiac arrest takes the lives of thousands of children every year. It is the #1 cause of death for student athletes. It kills more adults than lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS, combined. But, that’s it.
It is not enough. Simon’s Heart believes that all students should have their hearts screened. It should be a cardiac standard of care. And it should be a free heart test.
Research shows that cardiac screenings – when coupled with a good medical history and physical exam – are much more effective at detecting heart conditions than a history and physical alone. A heart screening can do more to prevent sudden cardiac arrest than just questions and listening to the heart.
Join us in Wynnewood on November 9th, 2022 for our first heart screening of the 2022-2023 academic year hosted by the generosity of Dr. Jason Bradley and our friends at Main Line Health. This screening is intended for students who have never had their heart checked. An exception to this rule is for students who have tested positive for COVID.
